  • Bed in Female Dormitory Room with Shared Bathroom - The Sanctuary Could I know how many people sleep in the room above?

    Our Sanctuary dorms are either 4 bed, 6 bed or 8 bed rooms. However, there is no price difference and it is random what room type you are going to get assigned to on arrival. If you prefer one of the above let us know in advance and we can do our best to meet your request.
